Re: TNA: Changing The Face Of Pro Wrestling
April 3rd 2006
Backstage at Impact Taping
I actually arrived a little late than usual due to my hard working weekend and a late flight. When I did arrive, I went right to Chris Jericho.
Me: Chris, you are the man. I talked to the guys I needed to talk to and I actually enjoyed a WWE Show.
Jericho: So a raise is called for?
Me: No problem.
Knowing Chris Jericho as well as I do, I saw this question coming, so I was prepared. I reached into my pocket, pulled out the latest Fozzy CD, and handed it to him.
Me: Thatís their best one date, you canít find it at any stores, and Iím sure itís not because each store only has like 3 copies available.
Jericho: I hear the lead singer is so bad ass, that he knocks punk kids into a coma.
Me: Lucky kids, they go without a Fozzy track that entire time.
Jericho: Kid, you arenít the sharpest tool in the shed, but youíve got grapefruits, and thatís carried McMahon a long way.
Me: Considering I think you just compared me to Vince McMahon, Iíll take that as a compliment.
After I was done talking with Jericho, Jeff Jarrett was quick to approach me.
Jarrett: Did you speak to him?
I had my fun with Jericho, I was going to be serious with Jeff.
Me: Yeah, heíll be at Lockdown and with the company until at least Sacrifice. Itís up to him if it goes past that.
Jarrett: Good, youíre not so dumb after all. At least you recognize and golden opportunity when it lands in your lap.
Me: Yeah, I try not to be a smark all the time.
I left things at that. I spoke with other workers about different topics throughout the night. The build for Lockdown continued this week.
Results for the 4/5 Show:
*Styles over Williams
*Kip over Harris & Stevens
*Jericho over Brown
